Well - I've hooked-up and set-up about 2 dozen times over the past few weeks - ports are forwarded but I can connect to the Slingbox Pro-HD about 10% of the time. I am particularly disappointed in this product, the servers, the network stability issues, etc. Tomorrow it goes back to Best Buy
What response or anything are you expecting from your post?
Are you hoping that someone from Sling Media will jump in and offer you something or you just posting this so that others know that you are dissatisfied?
Just curious as to why you posted this.
I, like most consumers, expected the product to work as stated by the manufacturer. It does not. I posted, and it was not listed as a question, simply to get it off my chest. I have a feeling there are others that are struggling with this device – and I wanted them to know they aren’t alone.

Fubarmubble, our sincere apologies for the frustration - it's understandable that you'd want to vent.
We'd like to be able to help - it sounds like this is a fairly new box, right? Have you called us for support? All new products come with 90 days of complimentary tech support, and even beyond that, there are still plenty of options for help. Here are a few links:
Hopefully we can speak with you soon? All is not lost!
